Hi kev,

Welcome to the boards, I am glad that they have been a good source of help and advice to you during these trying times. I am very sorry to hear of your loss.

if you have use of your hand then there really is no need for adaptions. I still ride and have lost my bicep, shoulder, forearm. but I kept the function in my wrist and hand. I own 3 bikes and none are adapted and all are manual.

As far as I know there is no insurance company who specialise in this injury. But you are obliged to tell them that you have an issue with your arm. I declare it as being a weakness in my shoulder and as far as I know I have never been hammered by premiums.

As to adaptions to gloves the best course of action I can suggest is to either buy a pair of handlebar mits that attach to the bar and you slide your hand into them. or take a bar grip and the glove of your choice to a seamstress and get some Velcro custom fitted, it wouldn't cost much.

If you would like to chat please feel free to call me on 0795 6525752

take care
